fed reserve was. much on the top and hasn't responded nothing gets a lot out of what has happened but it's not for fools who want to get anything like 2000. so another big slowdown scare this week was actually germany after the official g.d.p. think i showed a contraction on point one percent in q tip so we may already be in a 2nd quarter of the contraction which would meet that textbook definition of a recession is the german recession already on its way and similarly what's the most important metric to follow when trying to make that call. i think it is germany's having a recession and germany's christ didn't have a credit because german banks and german policies are actually discouraged brought in borrowing and they've survived mainly on huge strides. but that is a self-inflicted problem as germans are obsessed with running a balanced budget or even better that i think runs us but there's more monetary

theory in the sauces if the government runs a service because the private sector they have the same deficit and the as a private sector doesn't borrow money often cites then what you have is actually decline and. so this is an ongoing a lot of the germans they're trading that the entire economy like a household when a house all of them can spend less than a day and they will put my own side when a country tries to do it what actually happens is the attempt to trade the savings actually turns out completely out of line and so generally. having a recession. and steve circling back to asia china also seems to be slowing down but from a higher gear sort of speak clearly not in recession but with growth rates still well above the u.s. but when you back with made into such high recent growth rates a significant slowdown can still be very uncomfortable at the margins what would you say is china's status right now and where is it heading. now that sean is

3:40 am
chemicals have consequences they are major irritants there's no question otherwise why would that the chemical company workers themselves be geared up that suited up locals attempt to combat the on regulated experiments but often in day you have many of these people one foot into the biotech pharma and the other foot in the government regulatory bodies this kind of collusion is reprehensible while the battle goes on the chemicals continue to poison hawaii and its people so one has to ask the question whether there is a form of environmental research going on in hawaii whether these companies feel they can get away with this because the people have less political power. or with the suitable to solicit will. live for sunday and this is their.

what is due before you came here where did you work before you came here when as you live well death row in many us states capital punishment is still practiced convicted prisoners can spend years waiting for execution but most of the time the victims' families they are very much in favor the death penalty there are some people that because of what they did have given up the right to live among us some are even proven innocent off 2 years on death row and how many more exonerations is it going to take before we as a society realize that this is not working and we actually do something about.

you know i didn't. welcome back hong kong airline cathay pacific c.e.o. rendered his designate tendered his resignation on friday the move comes amid tensions between the airline and beijing over the company's employees taking part in antigovernment protests that have gripped hong kong for the last 2 and a half months airlines chief customer and commercial officer paul lu who also serves under haag resigned from his post hawg issued
3:46 am
a statement about the situation saying quote these have been challenging weeks for the airline and it is right that paul and i take responsibility as leaders of the company augustus tank and wing who serves as c.e.o. of heiko an engineering company owned by the airlines parent company swire pacific was tasked to take the reins of cathay the company's stock price has suffered having 10 year lows this week the chinese aviation regulatory arm issued a safety demands of cathay and required the airline to give full information of flight crew flying into the country's airspace. china while a technology has faced accusations of technicians helping the african governments to spy on their political opponents this is just the latest in a series of concerns about the telecom giants aspirations to penetrate world markets r.t. america sara month has a way fans and headquarters and sat down with one of the company's heads to discuss these allegations. create tension between the united states and china have only.
3:47 am
the worst in recent memory. telecom giant wall wave has been the forefront of a lot of these issues the united states says that the telecom giant close or the national security threat this is something while we have repeatedly denied party america has been warning while we had here in. diving deeper financing we sat down for an interview with vice president of strategy andrew williams and it's a private company owned by its employees as i say is about 100000 shareholders and to me as someone that's come to this company i think it's extraordinary the benefits of running an organization like that because people don't necessarily just pick up their paycheck at the end of the week of the end of the month they have a real vested interest in the commercial success and the quality of the products and services that the company produces and the latest allegations against wall way the wall street journal reported while we technicians in at least 2 cases personally helped african governments spy on their political opponents unnamed
3:48 am
senior surveillance officers said it was always employees received help from the offices in wally's headquarters uganda's top digital supplier while we were a few did the claim and said they'd never been engaged in such hacking activities we have neither the contracts nor the capabilities to do so you really have to check everything assume nothing. and trust almost nobody and that's the process in the system that we stick to and work with many of our partners around the world on that basis during our visit to always cybersecurity lab talk comm giant highlighted security as top priority and said they're the most transparent company in the world this despite facing growing international scrutiny we refute it quite vociferously . again it just feels like it's one of those stories that come up now and go to completely verify it it sounds like even other companies that have been cited in
3:49 am
terms of him. i've made it very clear they don't even have contracts in. one of the countries involved so it looks like that this story is unfortunately really just fake news and we have to suffer with as a state patriotically while we pledge its commitment to continue to provide the best technology and support for its customers all while continuing to fight the u.s. ban reporting in shenzhen china. are. turning to climate politics and asia and oceania australia is not making any friends this week after an acrimonious regional meeting the australian delegation led by recently reelected prime minister scott morrison reportedly demanded the removal of references to keith climate protection goals such as phasing out coal limiting temperature increases to $1.00 degrees celsius and reaching the 0 greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 the foreign minister of the island nation of ghana want to said the talks were fierce at times and nearly broke down as other island nations facing
3:50 am
existential threats from rising sea levels prost for urgent action the prime minister of tuvalu and nell a simple one of the told mr morrison in a joint press conference you were concerned about saving your economy in australia i am concerned about saving my people into vaal who later australian deputy prime minister michael mccormick aggravated the row mr maccormack scoffed at his neighbor's demands for a phase out of coal which he says would cost australian johns' while he said of those neighbors facing rising seas quote they'll continue to survive because many of their workers come here and pick our fruit pick our fruit grown with hard australian enterprise and. and now i'm going reality show ourself we know as brags that had another interesting episode this week as a major character who's been trying to keep himself on the edge of the state finally made his big play. here to give us the tea as the young people say is
3:51 am
hillary ford wedge a board member of the british american business association so hilary let's just get right to the main event of this week on bragg's that which was jeremy corvet who has been remarkably cautious and slow to make a clear move on braggs that he finally made his big move and essentially called out the opposition members and conservatives opposed to no deal brags that she joined forces with labor to prevent that outcome so what is their work or been proposed and where are we after his big play yes of course as the leader of the labor party the opposition party and what he wants to do at all costs is to be in power so what he's trying to do is he's trying to sort of muster a coalition he says he's going to call a no confidence vote and he's aiming to yes he's aiming to rally those tory backbenchers many of whom were originally remain knows the liberal democrats and anybody else basically that will join him in trying to walk to the drugs that no breaks it deal that johnson is going to push through by october 31st and so he's
3:52 am
we're basically looking to head a caretaker government and sort of a transitional government which would be a coalition of all those different factions and know what about those m.p.'s who have said no deal that would be a grave threat to the u.s. should u.k. economy and perhaps even the stability the integrity of the u.k. as we know it with regard to northern ireland and scotland how safe or dangerous it is for them to pass on an opportunity to be seen as blocking a new deal bragg's it over their discomfort with a caretaker even a caretaker government headed by german corben we saw the mayor of london so he can try to force the question essentially for the lib dems with that sort of pressure tactic work you're right he did try to force it i would say that the greatest existential threat is jeremy corbett because he would have a socialist government the markets would collapse he would be very anti-business and pro-union and that is at a time when actually we've seen you know the rate wages raised to the highest level they've been in many years to the british one. so i actually think he's more of an
3:53 am
existential threat i think actually m.p.'s are going to be very reluctant to join him because boris johnson is such a force that of course what boris johnson has in his back pocket pocket is his relationship with donald trump and in an impending or potential trade deal so i think it's going to be raillery risky for anybody who backs jeremy corbyn so i think they're going to try and stand fast and not cave to that pressure now the other dramatic event of this week was this m.p. the chair of the foreign affairs committee in parliament a member of prime minister johnson's conservative party he suggested that the pm could unilaterally pull out of the e.u. within 10 days so how do they react to this suggestion and what did this tell us about how we're doing here actually because the us you're referring of course to tom took in hand he is the m.p. from canada mailing and this was sort of a twitter statement that he made and so actually what's the opposite of a true toward to twitter proposition and part of me thinks that it's just he's floating that idea almost like sort of like a worst case scenario maybe it was to brace the markets i actually think it would
3:54 am
be unlikely within 10 days only for mainly 2 reasons i think that that would would shock international markets number one businesses are ready but maybe not within 10 days and also a lot of british holidaymakers of course are in europe at this time so that would throw them into a little bit of a conundrum returning to that back to the u.k. with this happening when people weren't prepared passport and customs wise and hillary pulling back for a bigger picture you mentioned the news on wages this week the national to statistics office said this we could be sick pay rose by 3.9 percent in the 2nd quarter the fastest rate of growth on that point since june of 2008 point 3 in with the other elements in the larger picture well i think that is it's great news it's great news for the british workers and of course what it does is it proves the brics it was all about the work of bracks it is about those that want jobs and want good wages in the u.k. not about global leaders not about those that are what the out of touch with the average worker across the u.k.
3:55 am
and this actually fits very well with boris johnson strategy and i think it's great news for him and great news for anybody who's going forward with a no breaks it because it shows stability and an underlying on the line prosperity for the british worker. now looking forward here the story broke earlier today that the prime minister is going on a diplomatic blitz this coming week meeting with his counterparts in france and germany and ireland as well as the european council president donald tusk ahead of an upcoming g. 7 meeting so we can kind of safely assume that brags there will be in the agenda but what do you think mr johnson's pitch will be when he sits down with these other decision makers are totally right of course breaks it will be on the agenda i'm sure i did just come at this news to just come out i think there are 2 factors here i think that both mccraw and markel are going to be completely different to talk to the jury so they ever had she did not have a microphone to talk to who has a 14 percent 27 percent approval rating and angela merkel uncle merkel is facing 14 percent of german products that were born in germany from from germany
3:56 am
by the u.k. and now bought from the u.s. so both macro and merkel are weakened and i think that's going to bode very well for boris johnson that's another reason i think he's going on the splits he also needs to sort of bypass the e.u. and go directly to those leaders because those leaders are being pressured by businesses in their countries. so it was always hold for which board member of the british american business association those are joining us pleasure. and that's it for this time you can catch boom bust on direct t.v. channel $321.00 dish network channel $280.00 or streaming 247 on pluto to be there for each of you have traveled to 79 are as always had us up that you did our current science boom bust arty scene x. time.

what do you do before you came here where did you work before you came here when you live well death row i'm in many us states capital punishment is still practiced convicted prisoners can spend years waiting for execution but most of the time the victims' families they are very much in favor of the death penalty there are some people because of what they did have given up the right to live among us some even proven innocent off the years on death row and how many more exonerations is it going to take before we as a society realize that this is not working and we actually do something about. how why a paradise with some around turned into a round the experimentation field for agricultural chemicals we know that these chemicals have consequences they are major irritants there's no question otherwise why would that the chemical company workers themselves be geared up that suited up locals attempt to combat the on regulated experiments but often in day you have
3:58 am
many of these people who have one foot into the biotech pharma and the other foot in the government regulatory bodies this kind of collusion is reprehensible while the battle goes on the chemicals continue to poison hawaii and its people so one has to ask the question whether there is a form of environmental research going on in hawaii whether these companies feel they can get away with this because the people have less political power. thanks guys or financial survival. when customers go by you reduce the price. to now well reduce a lower. that's undercutting well what's good for market is not good for the global economy.
